. this may be, but i don't know. host: what about the statement that the president was not aware that the nsa was tapping the phone of government leaders? guest: they said the president was generally aware of what the nsa was doing, but they have not specifically said he has known about -- that he knew about merkel or other allied leaders. it is probably true. critics will say, why didn't he know? you cannot win. it is a catch-22. they never expected to have snowden's revelations all over the place. it means there is almost an end to secrecy. first you had the wiki leaks, private manning, and now you have edward snowden who has caused and international -- an international uproar. it makes you wonder whether the government can preserve some of the secrets because there are young people who have other ideas and they are willing to take the risk of putting them out. it is an interesting and relatively new development that makes it hard. some secrets should be kept, but it is a question of degree. it looks as though the nsa was doing too much. they have to do some things, obviously. there has to
been targets of the national security agency. the "washington post" reports the nsa broke into those centers and retrieved millions of communication records from the companies. an italian magazine says the nsa recorded vatican phone calls when cardinals were gathering to elect a new pope. general keith alexander director of the nsa says the latest allegations are false. >> this is not nsa breaking into any databases. it would be illegal for us to do that. and so i don't know what the report is, but i can tell you factually we do not have access to google servers, yahoo servers. >> the "washington post" story was based on documents obtained from nsa leaker edward snowden. >>> 5:38 now. cabinet secretary kathleen sebelius has spent the past week defending that troubled rollout of the healthcare reform program. as susan mcginnis reports from capitol hill, things got tougher when she had to answer questions from a congressional committee. >>> reporter: health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is promising to fix the government's troubled healthcare website. >> so let me say
story out front, nsa leaker, edward snowden is on the defense, saying calls to the department of defense say that the leaking is justified. in a letter published in the german magazine, snowden says he is not the problem, it is the nsa. and he writes, citizens have to fight against the oppression. those who speak the truth are not committing a crime. a former cia operative, and ray mcgovern, a former cia analyst, great to have you both with us. let me start with you. snowden says the leaks are justified, fair? >> no, here is the problem, you can't work for the government and have a security clearance and wake up one day and decide to spill your guts. if we started down that road, where would it all stop? it would be the end of the nsa, the security force, the problem is he didn't have a venue where his complaints would be listened to. he couldn't take it to the senator house, he would have been ignored. and it is really the congress' fault, they need reform. >> and ray, let me ask you this, you hear bob saying if you go down this path where does it stop? it could be the end of the securi
